Is there anything more annoying then junk mail? PaperKarma is a new app that can stop most junk mail that is addressed directly to you. This awesome app will help you take control of your home or business mailbox and to receive what and only what you want. As it turns out, most businesses that send you junk mail also find this service useful. They don’t want to waste printing and delivery costs and have their material go directly into the trashcan. PaperKarma’s team work closely with the source companies to help you unsubscribe from catalogs, magazines, credit card offers, etc. Snap a photo, and you’re done, PaperKarma will automatically contact the Mailer and remove you from their distribution list.
According to the PaperKarma team each US household receives about 850 pieces of junk mail per year. For every mail you want, you receive about 20 unwanted ones, about 44% of which goes into landfills without even being opened! The damage to the environment, carbon footprint, wasted energy, etc. are considerable. PaperKarma was created to simultaneously address this environmental problem and to make sure you receive only what you want. Try the PaperKarma app, it enables you to simply snap a picture of your unwanted junk mail, press Send, and get unsubscribed.
